Chase Elliott wins at Watkins Glen, his 1st Cup victory

Chase Elliott wins at Watkins Glen, his 1st Cup victory

"Chase (Elliott) has ran a handful of races for the team so I figured I would give it a shot at Road America". "It's just every time I'd start putting together some good corners and get close enough to him to even think about making a move, I'd get sideways behind him". Not a bad escort to Victory Lane. Bell became the first series driver since Dale Earnhardt Jr.in 1999 to win three straight with a victory last week at Iowa. He won at Sonoma, California, the only other true road course on the regular-season schedule, in late June and is the defending Watkins Glen victor. If I hadn't have slipped there I would have been able to take advantage for sure - got by him.

The final stage came down to a battle between Elliott and Truex. We ran out of gas on the last lap anyway, so I guess it wouldn't have mattered. "He did a good job of putting his vehicle exactly where it needed to be and not making a mistake".

Finishing third was Kyle Busch of Joe Gibbs Racing.

The race promised to turn into a fuel mileage race as the laps wound down, and nobody has been better with the strategy than Truex and crew chief Cole Pearn.

"We got about a couple hundred more tickets to go before we declare a sell-out".

Midway through the segment, the Big 3 of Busch, Truex and Kevin Harvick were running in the top 10, but Elliott dominated and beat Busch by 1.3 seconds. #18 Kyle Busch regained the lead to open the final stage of the race, but wouldn't keep it long as he hit the pitlane for his final pit stop of the race during the caution that was brought out by #32 Matt DiBenedetto. The fuel probe malfunctioned on the ensuing pit stop and the crew only got a few gallons into the No. 18 Toyota. "Every year we come here, we have a fast auto and fail to execute, whether that's just called bad luck or whatever".

"You do what you can do, " said Keselowski, a three-time runner-up at The Glen, "if it takes strategy to win, you play strategy".

Denny Hamlin started the race from the pole of the 220.5-mile event but lost the lead on Lap 2 when he was passed by teammate Busch in the sweeping Carousel turn.

The victory for the Hendrick Motorsports driver gave Chevrolet its second points victory of the season and locked Elliott into the championship-deciding playoffs, which begin in Las Vegas five races from now.

NASCAR Xfinity Series qualifying, MBCSN, 11:35 a.m. He lasted less than three laps on Sunday after sliding off course and then heading to the garage with a broken radiator, his day done. "That's key. It's impossible. when you get the vehicle out of the hauler to make that 20th-place auto a winning race auto by the end of second practice".

The next race is Sunday Aug. 12 at Michigan International Speedway in Brooklyn.
